The laptop has all the original disks, manual, an interchangable CD/3.5 floppy with an exterior case (miserable old "dongle" style). It's running Win95 and Office 97. It's a P90, plays music CD's with a great sound and with headset, has Megahertz XJ2288 PCMCIA modem.
Of course, Toshiba no longer supports it, Microsoft doesn't support Win95, so I can't research what more "up to date" hardware/software we might be able to add. I thought of upgrading the OS to at least Win98 (have a legal disk), considered XP but am afraid the machine would explode Has a free slot I (maybe) could use for a surplus Linksys wireless network card I have, if that wouldn't create a million conflicts, and I have an external Iomega CD/RW I'd like to add as well. I just don't know if adding/upgrading will create conflicts with the vitals that keep the laptop going. I've been making my living as software support for years, but know just enough about the hardware to be wary of messing with it.
He has to go home next week, and is going to take the laptop "as is" if we haven't found any info on upgrading it, but I'd really like him to have any improvements we can provide. Anyone out here know about bringing old stuff up to date??
